either president obama or mitt romney have good ideas for reforming it? nope. that's what a long-time republican says. i'll talk to him. also, china's growth is fueling a fair portion of the global economy. what happens if that growth slows down? we'll explore. first, here's my take. the controversy over the d desecration of copies of iran and the murder of americans that follow is at one level, one moment in a long complicated war. it also highlights the difficult and ultimately unsustainable aspect of america's afghan policy. president obama wants to draw down u.s. troops, but his strategy remains to transition power and authority to an afghan national army and police force as well as to the government in kabul which would run the country and its economy. this is a fantasy. we must recognize that and pursue a more realistic alternative. the united states tends to enter wars in developing countries with a simple idea, modernize the country and you will solve the national security problem. an articulation of that approach came from none other than newt gingrich during a 2010 spee
